The Resistance is a Swedish death metal band formed in 2011 by former members of In Flames, Grave and The Haunted.

The band had problems getting a label, despite the members' successful work in their earlier projects. In an interview with Close-Up Magazine, they stated that the labels were unwilling to sign the band without getting hand on an actual recording.

Their music is described as old-school Death Metal with the aggressive elements of 80's thrash and hardcore. The first full length album named "Scars" was released in 2013. "It makes you want to kick in someone's forehead when listening to the album", according to Jesper Strömblad, the band's guitarist. The first planned album was cancelled, since the band members were not satisfied with the result.
